Charm City (Tess Monaghan Mysteries)

Charm City - Laura Lippman The plot is sluggish and the clues are a bit random. Tess is still pretty interesting and I wanted e story to be more about her than the different threads of this not very inetresting plot about a man, his downfall and the surprised left field psychotic murderer revealed two chapters from the end of the book. I gave it three stars because of the characters. At least four female characters that were interesting and smart. One slightly too good to be true boyfriend that I kinda wish will stick around in the next book. So barely 2 stars for the plot but easily 3.5 stars for the characters.
